Weighted multi-criteria energy planning and optimization
Energy planning and optimization involves multiple criteria decision-making process such as fulfilling energy demand, minimizing the emission of carbon-dioxide to the atmosphere, minimizing the consumption of fossil fuels, and maximizing the consumption of the energy produced from renewables. These criteria are conflicting and very complex to optimize as an aggregate decision-making scenario. A common practice is to analyze the trade-offs between the criteria before making an energy consumption decision. For instance, energy demand may be located closer to fossil fuel supply location than renewable ...
